lev04, 26 Apr 2013Yeah,you`re so right.....how hard can it be to obtain huge profi... morePeople buy Samsung due to the innovations that come with it, better software updates, and listening to customer demands of what features should be included. The reason for plastic back cover is for battery accessibility that you cannot possibly do with a glass or aluminum. To use glass or aluminum, the device should have non replaceable battery.

sara, 26 Apr 2013Samsung is doing great. Pls be informed that Super Amoled screen... moreAnd be informed that the Super AMOLED is the best screen ever. It has the deepest blacks because the LEDS are turned off when in black background and therefore not using power thereby saving battery. In SGS3 and NOTE 2 , you can set the display to MOVIE MODE to get the most accurate colors. In SGS4 you can set the screen to Adobe RGB to attain the most accurate colors. It doesn't matter if they are using Pentile matrix because human eye cannot detect the pixels over 300 ppi much more with the SGS4 with 441 ppi.
So wake up and be educated on the screen technology.

sara, 26 Apr 2013Samsung is doing great. Pls be informed that Super Amoled screen... moreDude, you have to look at how the screen looks, not what somebody says or doesn't say. Just look at the screen and compare with other phones and you'll see that it looks the best, if it doesn't then choose a different phone, besides you can set the colors the way you want for that Amoled screen in settings. But what looks better looks better. The colors in todays movies or pictures everywhere, they are all oversaturated than natural photos, that's because people like it more that way. So why not enjoy the better looking colors on the phone? Well Amoled's probably one of they key reasons I'll have to stick with Samsung...

samsung packed with features that so appealing and more advanced than apple. what you paid for apple users is the brand that costs so much...android is better than ios:-)

  • Samsung Rules!

Why so much hate? This is great news! HTC and Sony need to get thier act together and make better phones. Well done Samsung you put the effort in and thats what makes you Number 1. Best Hardware and Software combined!

guys stop quarelling which brand is top1...there are many people in the world never had apple or samsung...if only both samsung and apple will be releasing affordable smartphones yet packed with features then that would be a serious battle between the two beasts.

Tell me, does your phone have Super Amoled HD screen, great camera for both photo capturing and video recording, killer CPU and GPU, futuristic features such as hover function and splitscreen multitasking and aslo wacom digitizer with it's 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, and, o yeah, battery capacity beaten only by the Razr Maxx lineup? Yeah, I don't think so, too.

Just read the source and your question will be answered. It's Samsung Electronics, so leave out the soap, etc. .

samsung rules, 26 Apr 2013So you're saying that is gonna happen to apple alsoYes, no company in the world is immumme to loosing the number 1 throne.

Apple missed the opportunity for large-screen phone and the users have turned to Android phones. So Apple phone is seeing decline.

The only company that can hold number market share forever is Microsoft due to 90% of users using Windows as desktop and laptop

they should tell us profit from each department ie soap depertment, cooking oil depertment, textiles depertment, tv, freezers,hometheatre,microwaves ....maybe the mobile phone depertment is operating at a loss

Its just a lot easier to replase the plastic on a galaxy s4 than it will be on a iphone r a htc one
